I'm looking at Spec stage 3 clutch kits for NA supras to use with my W56. I noticed they have one clutch for 82-88 and another one for 89-98. The earlier one is cheaper but they both claim to have the same torque capacity.

I have an 89+ engine with the 7M crank, an 87 bellhousing and fork, and a 90 flywheel. I also have access to an 86 flywheel if that makes a difference

Does it matter which kit I get? Will the later one be stronger?

I need to order this thing soon. Any suggestions?

I also noticed the 82-88 Supra N/A clutch kit is the same as the early 22RTE.

I picked up a 3200lb pressure plate from a small manufacturer in LA, and am currently running that along with a clutchnet six puck sprung hub disc. It's holding up great so far, with no slipping at all. I'll dig up the name of the pressure plate manufacturer.

clutch from a 2J n/a seems to fit on there alright ? I'll have to check that out, i think i might have gotten some oil from my oil leak into the bellhousing since my clutch seemed to slip real bad the first time i hit full boost. I'm not really certain since i dont have a tach yet and i let off as soon as the boost gauge read 6+ psi. I wasnt trying to push it that hard yet, it just spools so damn fast. I never installed the lower front bellhousing cover initially, its on there now AFTER the fact Evil or Very Mad The clutch i have on there now is an upgraded mk3 N/A clutch, cant remember what brand since its been over a year since i bought it. My mind is going already and im only 23 Wink

Just to get this straight before I get my clutch. I have an 89 7mgte motor an 89 non-turbo bellhousing and a w56 transmission. Do I use the non-turbo clutch for that year?

yes.....

If you planning in offroading the vehicle, i would get a stock spec clutch - it will be much easier to slip and won't be so grippy.

In my converiosn I ended up just using a stock 7m NA clucth and to me it seems a little too gripping when I need to slip it when I'm wheeeling. and that is with dual ultimate cases.....

Thanks! So a stock clutch will be ok then.. I thought that I would have to get a centerforce clutch or something similar
